WHEATON – Coming off a Class 3A state championship last fall, the St. Francis girls volleyball team is loaded again this fall.

The Spartans are led by two of the best players in the state in sisters Maddie Haggerty (headed to Nebraska) and Molly Haggerty, and also return libero Sam Dubiel (Florida), setter/libero Natalie Murison and front-row players Becca Shearer and Mary Boken.

A 37-win squad in 2012, St. Francis will be tested early and often, both in tournaments and within the Suburban Christian Conference.
